Mermaid Tarot and Hot Witch Tees Galore!

Hello everyone!

The Handbook For Hot Witches tour has officially begun! As most of you hopefully know by now, the book was released on Tuesday which was a very happy day! Things are going pretty well right now, the House of Dame Darcy is finally up and running with lots of dolls, comics, and art for every Savannah pedestrian strolling by to check out.

I'm learning how to use the tricky square credit card reader (technology blows my mind) and I love meeting and talking with interesting people at the store.

The studio is looking great, the floors and walls are tastefully painted pink and blue and there's plenty of natural light with the big windows- it's just how I wanted it, like stepping into an elaborately decorated psychedelic birthday cake!

I've delved a little more into the printing business with my new Mermaid, and Hot Witch tees. You've gotta check them out! They're so soft and cozy and I even have my own custom Dame Darcy tag inside! Look at me, ma! ;) I feel really good about it all.

Yesterday, I put my Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot deck to use by reading my beloved friend and business partner, Beth's, tarot.

I do need to put down the Tarot though because these next few weeks are going to be super hectic for me! I'll have my awesome crew with me so hopefully they can keep me sane...beginning September 1st I'm going to the Decatur book festival in Atlanta and then onto several Pagan Pride festivals in Jacksonville, Savannah, Athens, and Augusta-whew! I'll be performing a Cabaret at the Savannah Pagan Pride with my dear friends and magic witch sisters, Adriana Iris Boatwright, Juli, and Fiona Horne -- I am so ready for some good times with my girls. And then everyone in Savannah needs to get ready for the Naughty Nautical Night at The Spare Time on September 28th. There's going to be belly dancing, a DJ and probably lots of weirdness, which is OK with me!

Before I go out and enjoy my Saturday, I just want to say thank you to the Goddess and my wonderful friends who manifest in her many forms, particularly Beth Vantosh, Skippy Spiral, Claire Clayton, Kyle Hoover and all the creatures of the Earth, the spirits of the elements, and the spirits of Calhoun Square.
May we all live in peace, abundance and light, love, liberty and life!
